The Cibolo Nature Camp Experience

We believe that nature provides the perfect setting for your child to discover their inner scientist, wild thing, chemist, or writer.  Whatever your camper dreams of being, we would love to help foster their connection to nature to help them find their path! Nature camp combines outdoor recreation, science-based experiments, and adventure to keep your camper creating and learning throughout the summer. 

Our camp community is strong, and we are forging lifelong friendships at Cibolo Camps!  Many of our Camp Leaders grew up attending camps at the Cibolo.  We want to foster leadership, friendship and community in our camps so that your campers will grow up strong, confident and comfortable in nature.

Themed weeks include Weaving Wonderland, Upcycled Art, and Found in Nature.  They will use nature as their canvas, their medium and their inspiration through a wide variety of artistic techniques.  Art Camp also includes plenty of time exploring outside, including swimming in the Cibolo Creek.
